Tuner Battlegrounds is a bracket-style tournament facilitated online by Performance Auto & Sound Magazine (PASMAG) at www.tunerbattlegrounds.com.
Tuner Battlegrounds: Live (TBGL) will be integrated into Importfest as an award category, similar to a "People's Choice" award.
To compete in the Tuner Battlegrounds Award Category, Competitors (Tuners) MUST follow the following steps:
1. Register to compete at Importfest at HERE.
2. Once Importfest has confirmed registration for the event, Register to compete in Tuner Battlegrounds at www.tunerbattlegrounds.com/register (Importfest Toronto to be selected in the "Event Affiliation" field)
Deadline to compete in Tuner Battlegrounds is Monday, July 22, 2013
A Competitor Profile will be created for all Tuner Battlegrounds registered Tuners and displayed on the Competitors Page. 16 Tuners will qualify and be selected to enter the Battle Stages (competition rounds). In the Battle Stages, Tuners will be paired off to battle each other, one Stage after another, and 1(one) Tuner (from each Battle) will advance to the next Stage.
How to advance to the next Stage? When the Battle Stages begin, Tuners must obtain votes* at www.tunerbattlegrounds.com. Rather than PASMAG's internal staff acting as judges to select the winners, that responsibility will fall in the hands of the audience (the fans, show-goers and friends and family of the competing Tuners). With a click of a button, the audience will be able to vote and choose their winners, one Stage after another. At the end of each Stage, the Tuner with the highest number of votes will advance to the next Stage.
STAGE 4 | Finals - The TOP 2 Tuners will battle against each other ON-SITE at the event by gathering votes via text. A Text-to-Vote Telephone Number and Voting Short Code will be assigned to the 2 Tuners to gather votes. Voting will start on Saturday, July 27, 2013 @ 12:00PM and end @ 9:00PM. The Winner will be announced at the event during the Awards Ceremony on Saturday, July 27, 2013.
*During the Elimination Stages, Voters are limited to one (1) vote per Facebook account every 24 hours of the posted Selected Competitors. In the Final Stage, Voters are limited to one (1) vote per telephone number of the posted Finalists
